Welcome to Texland... the texiest place on earth!!
Dec. 31 Ooh, tingly rum feeling!
Yes, I am enjoying my rum and egg nog. Anyhoo. Merry Christmas every one! I actually had a really good Christmas this year. We had a full house as usual. There were 2 cousins, 1 granny, 2 boyfriends, 1 sibling, 2 parents and 1 uncle... oh, ya and one me. So we had a real party. X-mas eve we went to church and such. Because Kaylin is great, he came with us. That was awsome. Then my fam went to my uncle's and ate more. Then it was off to bed so we could get goodies from the big guy. I got to sleep till 9 this year. That was really nice. Then we did presents and stockings. I was pretty happy with everything. I got a great drafting table for my artsy stuff and a chair and lamp to go with it. So now my room is smaller! Lol. I also have enough socks to last me for a week straight! Lol. That was the big stuff. I got some cash, which is good. After we finished the presents, we started to clean up. Which is always fun! We started supper, etc. In the afternoon, my uncle and cousins came over and we did the present thing again. Yay for more money! Lol. So we ate more, chatted more. Then Kaylin came over for supper. I don't know how we manage to pack so much food away. It must be because we realise we're not going to eat a real meal for another 4 months. So sad. So, we then had another gift exchange with Kaylin. He replaced my mom's measuring cups cause he broke one of her old ones and he gave my dad a horrible picture from thanksgiving. I do believe the camera is now going to be banned from all family events. Lol. So, now I get to tell you what I got! First, I had to dig through a box and actually find it. Turns out it was attached to another gift. Evil. Lol. Anyhoo, I got an awsome diamond necklace! It's super pretty. I almost wrecked it because it was taped to a stuffed dog and the tape was evil. My mom went at the chain with scisssors. I was a little afraid. Lol. I had to promise not to lose it or I would be dead. Thanks hun, I love you too! Lol. But seriously, it was great. Surprisingly enough, the holiday itself wasn't too bad. But man, am I ever happy it's over! Lol.
So life is continuing as normal. I went out to start my car yesterday afternoon and I discovered some little shit had broke into my car and stole my deck! Wow, talk about flash rage. The little hole in the window soon became a big hole. Fortunately, the only damage was to the window. I don't know how, but they got the deck without destroying my car. It looks like they ripped the box right out of the cradle because it was bolted in pretty good. We're all pretty surprised they didn't totally trash the console to get at it. So, Kaylin (because he's great) called window places and found me a cheap place, then (because he's great) he drove my cold, glass filled car to Boyd. They had it done today and they washed and vacuumed my car, then lubed up my door latch. All for a measly 190 bucks. Pretty damn good. Honda charges 260 just for the window, and another hundred for installation. Jerks. Oh well. The cops were notified, my car is fixed kind of, and I get to savour the sound of silence. Good thing I only paid 20 bucks for the deck! Lol. Anyhoo, time for bed. Talk to you all later. Have a great and safe New Years!
Dec. 18 Go ten days!
Well, let me fill you in on the last 10 days... if I can remember them... and I've only been drunk once in that time frame. And it was good fun! Lol. Checkers and chess for drinks is a really bad idea. Especially when you suck at chess. Stupid pro-star boyfriend. Oh well.
So, judging from Ed's comment on the forums he actually comes to my site! I had pretty much decided that no one visits any more. I just update occasionally for the fun of it. Cool. Lol.
So, my secretarial job is going ok. I only put in a few hours a week. I'm supposed to be putting in 8ish. There is definately not that much work. Gah, my sister is making my head hurt worse. Boo to her and making my head hurt worse. Anyhoo, I'm going to bed now. I have to get up early and do stuff, then be at Kaylin's around afternoonish. Whenever that is. Lol. My guess would be after lunch some time. Then, I have to finish my shopping. So close. And go to the gym. yay. Wait, I only have to get one gift tomorow. The rest I can get on Saturday. When I am hoping to be completely done. Ok, time to go or I'll keep rambling on and on. Good night kids!
Dec. 8 so much greatness!
Wow, It's been awhile. Lots has happened! Firstly and most importantly... I got the secretarial job! Lol. Just kidding... that's not the most important. The most is KAYLIN AND I HAD OUR YEAR ANNIVERSARY! That's right all you boo-hoos that didn't think we'd last this long! Lol. But ya, it's been an incredible year! We celebrated by going for supper at John's Prime Rib. So good. So much food. Mmmm. Then we went to Gothika. Then we went for a walk. It was awsome. Kaylin framed 3 pictures for me. Two of them are of us and one's of him. It's super nice. I can hang the whole shabang on my wall! It's a pretty big deal that he gave me a picture of him willingly. It doesn't happen often. Like, every lunar eclipse or so! Lol. Anyhoo, also, there was a picture he took when he was in BC. It's super pretty. So all in all, we had a really awsome night. Now I just have to think up a Christmas present for him;)
Speaking of which, I'm almost done my shopping! I just have a few little things to get and two big presents. Usually I'm maybe starting to think about starting my shopping by now... if I'm lucky. It's amazing how once you start being a little broke, you panic and really start to think about spreading out the spending. My plan is to get one gift a week until x-mas. That way I can still pay for plates on the 18th and all that fun stuff. Yay. Come on money for Christmas. This topic is depressing. Oh well, good thing I have to go get ready for work anyway. I'll talk to you all later though. Call me, I have Tues and Wed off! Weee! Later!
Nov. 17 Oh God, muscle attrophy...
So, how's it goin everyone? I'm not bad. It's not even 11 am yet and I'm up. Boo. I went to the Sally Ann but the guy I'm working with wasn't in, so I didn't have anything to do, so I left. Now I plan on going to the gym because I haven't been there in 2 weeks. And not my body is starting to really hurt. Like, I have a cramp from my hip to my calf. All from lack of exercise. How crappy is that? That means I have to do a leg day. Boo. Oh well. Maybe I'll feel better.
So what else... um, well Kaylin is off in BC. Where it's plus 6 and rainy. I think I would take that over a freazing, frosty car any day... oh wait, it's BC... I hate BC. Lol. Meh. But ya, he's back on Saturday. That means I have to entertain myself for a week. I think I'll just sleep. That's a good plan. Then hopefully I won't get his illness. RAWR!
So what else... I finished part of my x-mas shopping. I might have a new job by the end of the week. I'm trying out for the secretaries postion in my church. should be interesting. If I get it, things will work out really well in the New Year because the church is busy, and the store isn't. That way it will hopefully balance out a bit. I have too much to pay for in December. (Stupid plates.) Yay for warm water. I am seriously aching here. Maybe I am getting sick. That's a bad thing. Apparantly I'm not allowed to get sick till Kaylin gets home. Lol. I really hope to spare him the torture of me being sick. I tend to cry a lot. And I go limp and crawl around. Me sick is very bad. Like, standing causes extreem dizziness and nausea. Not cool. Fortunately, I'm rarely sick. Anyhoo. I'm sure you all care so much! Lol. But ya, I have to go eat then go sweat. Have a gooder dudes. Tata for now.
Here's a little something I just love. I've got it sent to me a couple times and it always makes me smile. Enjoy.
Why Women Cry
"Why are you crying." a young boy asked his Mom?
"Because I'm a woman" she told him.
"I don't understand" he said.
His Mom just hugged him and said,
"And you never will, but that's O.K.".......
Later the little boy asked his father,
"Why does Mom seem to cry for no reason?".
"All women cry for no reason," was all his Dad could say......
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God and when God got back to him, he asked "God, why do women cry so easily?" GOD answered......
"When I made woman, I decided she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet, made her arms gentle enough to give comfort... !
I gave her the inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times will come even from her own children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going and take care of her family and friends, even when everyone else gives up, through sickness and fatigue without complaining....
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances. Even when her child has hurt her badly....
She has the very special power to make a child's boo-boo feel better and to quell a teenager's anxieties and fears....
I gave her strength to care for her husband, despite faults and I fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart....
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly....
For all of this hard work, I also gave her a tear to shed. It is hers to use whenever needed and it is her only weakness.... When you see her cry, tell her how much you love her, and all she does for everyone, and even though she may still cry, you will have made her heart feel good.
Aw, it's so cute and I like to think it's true.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY poem I left up!!!!
I climbed up the door and opened the stairs,
Said my pajamas and put on my prayers,
Then I turned off the bed and crawled into the light,
All becuz you kissed me goodnight!
Next morning I woke up and scrambled my shoes,
Picked up my eggs and toasted the news,
I couldn't tell my left from right,
All becuz you kissed me goodnight!
That evening at last I felt normal again,
So I picked up my mother and called the phone,
I spoke to the puppy and threw Dad a bone,
Even at midnight the sun was still bright,
All becuz you kissed me goodnight!
Jan. 21 The inevitable.
Here's a quote from Shakespeare.
Then call them to our presence; face to face,
And frowning brow to brow, ourselves will hear
The accuser and the accused freely speak.
High-stomach'd ate they both and full of ire,
In rage, deaf as the sea, hasty as fire.
Richard II I.i 14-19
Another funny joke.
What did the Mexican fire chief name his two sons?
Hose A and Hose b...
Hahahahahha... get it? Hahahahaha. Hehe. Ha. Ok, it's funnier heard then read.
A funny joke Leanne sent me that I want to keep on here.
Ok to start things off, here's a joke Leanne sent me. I was cleaning out my inbox and found it.
A woman is shopping in the local supermarket. She selects some
milk, some eggs, a carton of juice, and a package of bacon.
As she unloads her items at the cash register to pay, a man
standing behind her in line watches her place the four items on
the belt and states with assurance, "You must be single."
The woman looks at the four items on the belt, and seeing nothing
unusual about her selection says, "That's right. How on Earth did
He replies, "Because you're ugly."
Lol, that's gold.
I left this up for the enjoyment of the public.
NEXT! Here's a story I wrote for a certain friend of ours. You'll know who it is right away if you know my close social group... or if you know "the fireman".
Once apon a time, there was this guy. He was an ok guy. He had devil spots. He also liked to drink. When he drank, he got kind of weird. He got very gropey infact.
One night, he was at the bar with some friends. He was drunk... again. So, he walked up to one of his friends and promptly grabbed her ass... cause that's what he does. She laughed. It was funny. Then, he crawled under a table. He ended up sucking on the finger of his friends girlfriend. That too was funny. The friend laughed.
So, this guy just went around when he was drunk grabbing unfortunate women, most of which were his friends... which was probably a good idea cause a stranger would have kicked his ass.
But, that is the story of Gropey Gus. The End
